4 Results and Discussion
4.1 Preparation of sample solution under test
This law was determined by chemical analysis of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, the relative instrumental analysis methods, said the large amount of samples taken, its high degree of accuracy because of poor uniformity of organic fertilizers, said a small amount of samples taken to measure the reproducibility of the results would be less capable. At the same time sampling can be determined using the same sample under test liquid nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, with a convenient, fast advantages.
4.2 With regard to nitrogen distillation, absorption, titration
The author in 2000, assembling NC - 2 Rapid determination of nitrogen-based devices, has been a lot of compound fertilizer plant and the analytical testing of the device measured in units of nitrogen, which combines distillation, absorption, titration in one, without condenser (ie, no cooling water ), easy to operate, fast, accurate and can be completed within 10 min in the distillation, absorption, titration of fixed nitrogen entire process.
4.3 With regard to the determination of phosphorus
Law with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium shared determination of phosphorus liquid under test and improve the speed of analysis. As many of compound fertilizer plant not acquired spectrophotometer, can only adopt Quinoline phosphomolybdate gravimetric method for determination of phosphorus. Gravimetric Determination of Phosphorus accuracy, high precision, relatively low sensitivity of spectrophotometry is just a number, this compound fertilizer plants significantly affected because the sample of more than 011% phosphorus can be determined by this Act, less than 011% not make much sense for manufacturers, from time considered. During phosphorus and potassium measurement, after numerous tests, at 120 ℃ drying time 115 h under the conditions of dry phosphorus and potassium in the sediments, the determination of phosphorus did not affect the results (ie, 45 min and 180 ℃ drying under the conditions of measurement is consistent with the results of phosphorus) can simultaneously phosphorus and potassium measured dry.
4.4 With regard to the determination of potassium
Determination of potassium and is based compound fertilizer plant is generally not equipped with the conditions of the flame photometer, using the weight of potassium tetraphenylborate method. Determination of organic fertilizers in the method of acid-soluble potassium is used, dissolution of metal cations more, although the fluid under test by adding sufficient amount of EDTA solution, when the fluid under test, when transferred to alkaline boil 15 min later, there will be a small amount of hydroxide precipitate produced, but this does not affect the determination of potassium, as long as filters to remove these deposits, and then sodium tetraphenylborate precipitation of potassium, the determination of potassium not affected. This law applies to more than 011% potassium determination of the samples can also be formulated to meet the Fertilizer plant production.
